The Esky is in the traditional rectangular shaped cold storage container with the outer surface clad in a brown metal material. The interior of the Esky is lined with metal. Blue/grey rubber seal around perimeter at top. Black plastic screw-in plug at bottom for draining Esky. There is a white plastic tray inside. A transfer on both sides of the esky says 'Malley's Esky Portable Cooler'. It has a metal brace that secures the lid by locking into the lid's carry handle. The lid is white painted metal and is lined with galvanised metal, it has a metal carry handle and some surface rust.
The brown cardboard box is the Esky's original packaging. It has an illustration on all sides of a red Esky, and a smiling child dressed as an Eskimo, along with the musical slogan 'Take the party with you' and the words 'Malleys New Look Esky. Smooth, sleek, streamlined'. The newspaper lining the box is dated January 1970, indicating not the date of purchase but the time when the Partridge family moved to Sydney. Box made by Alliance Cartons Pty Ltd, Revesby and Bankstown.
